OECD member countries and Associates decided to postpone the PISA 2021 assessment to 2022 and the PISA 2024 assessment to 2025 to reflect post-Covid difficulties.
PISA 2022 will focus on mathematics, with an additional test of creative thinking. The new PISA 2022 mathematics framework was recently launched.
Preparations for this test are underway with participants from 38 OECD members and likely 50+ non-members involved.
PISA 2025 will focus on science and include a new assessment of foreign languages. It will also include the innovative domain of Learning in the Digital World which aims to measure students’ ability to engage in self-regulated learning while using digital tools.
